Artiste Graduation Card


koreen card1-650
Hello Crafty Friends,

I want to share a card I made for my beloved newest Sister In Law. She just graduated with her Master’s Degree and we are SO VERY PROUD of HER!!! She is an amazing young woman with a super bright future ahead of her. My brother is a very blessed young man to have her and vice versa!

Here is the finished card. The finished size is 5 x 6.5.

Here is a close up of the “Blue Ribbon” I used the Bravo Stamp Inside one of the Circle Frames in Chocolate. I used a scallop punch to cut this out instead of the corresponding Cricut Cut. I then stamped the Zig Zag Ribbon Stamp in Lagoon. Instead of using the corresponding Cricut Cut, I used a Circle Punch. I didn’t want too many scalloped and zig zag edges competing.

Here is a close up of the decorative strip. I used the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set to create the edges and then the Grad cap and sentiment were from the same Kudos Stamp Set. I used some Cinnamon Stickles to decorate the butterflies as well as the Bravo.


I used the Following To Complete:
